The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy--Mildred L. Batchelder Winner

The Wonderful Fluffy Little Squishy-by Beatrice Alemagna and translated by Claudia Zoe Bedrick--Eddie is five and a half, and thinks she is the only one in her family who isn't really good at something. So when she hears her little sister say "birthday- Mommy- fluffy-little-squishy," it's extra important for her to find this amazing present before anyone else does. So, gregarious, charming, clever little Eddie goes all around the neighborhood to all her fabulous friends-the florist, the chic boutique owner, the antiques dealer, and even the intimidating butcher-to find one. It's a magical adventure that draws on Eddie's special gifts, ones that she herself learns to appreciate.
